USA: Trump's hard stance on 'chain migration' met by boos

United States, Washington DC
January 31, 2018 at 08:23 GMT -00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump's assertion that chain migration can bring in "virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives" was met by heckles, during his first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday.

The reform will be one of the four pillars of his immigration plan intended to protect the nuclear family. Trump's claim sent ripples of catcalls and murmurs through the ranks of Democrats.

Trump said the plan would "focus on the immediate family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children."

He then linked past accounts of terrorist attacks to the visa lottery system and chain migration, saying, "It is time to reform these outdated immigration rules, and finally bring our immigration system into the 21st century."

La afirmación del presidente estadounidense Donald Trump de que la inmigración en cadena puede llevar a EE.UU. a "un número prácticamente ilimitado de parientes distantes" fue recibida con abucheos y gritos de asombro, durante su primer Discurso sobre el Estado de la Unión este martes en el Congreso en Washington D.C.

Esta reforma pretende ser uno de los cuatro pilares de su plan de inmigración destinado a proteger a la familia nuclear. No obstante, las palabras de Trump provocaron abucheos y murmullos en las filas de los demócratas.

Trump afirmó que su plan "se enfocaría en la familia inmediata al limitar los patrocinios a cónyuges e hijos menores".

Luego continuó vinculando los “ataques terroristas” sufridos recientemente por EE.UU. al sistema de “lotería de visas y la inmigración en cadena”, y aseguró que "es hora de reformar estas obsoletas reglas de inmigración, y finalmente llevar nuestro sistema de inmigración al siglo XXI".
